I've always dreamed about seeing this historical site. It was everything and more! Having an English speaking guide was a must...Peter was very knowledgable. Visiting during the off-season had the benefit of few people and so enabled us to see everything easily. I am eager to observe how the archaeologists progress with the area close to the Emporer's tomb...I will... More

Come here! See everything! Buy the mini sets from the guys outside and bargain with them! Plan to spend a couple of hours and visit all the warrior areas and the museum.

This "museum" is much, much more. It was very impressive to see all the warriors and to learn that they had to be pieced together after having been destroyed. You can also view unfinished warriors and horses that haven't been reassembled. It was eye-opening, a true wonder!

I was so looking forward to visiting, and was not disappointed. This is an absolute must see. Restoring these warriors after being destroyed by the Mongolians is such a time consuming and amazing thing. To hear about how they were made and to be so up close enough too see the detail that made each of them individual is unbelievable.... More

The warriors are housed in purpose built buildings that sit alone in abandoned parkland. On a better day (No smog), they would be a great place to sit under the trees and have a picnic. No one else seemed to be paying any attention to the grass areas, maybe due to their limited time limits. Walking into the main building... More

My daughter compared it to the Acropolis in Athens, but I honestly thought it was way better. The sheer immense size of the whole project was mind boggling. And now with the recently opened and enlarged entrance piazza and better tourist facilities with restaurants and coach parking, the whole experience was really world-class. Suggest you MUST hire one of the... More
